Former Doctor Who companion Karen Gillan is coming back to television in the My Fair Lady modern re-telling, Selfie, and you can watch the series pilot now!
According to ABC, Selfie follows the life of “Instafamous” Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) who has 263,000 followers that hang on to her every post, tweet and selfie. One lonely day, however, she has a revelation: being friended is not the same as having actual friends. She asks marketing guru Henry (John Cho) to ‘rebrand’ her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect with people in the real world. Loosely based on My Fair Lady, Selfie explores the modern struggles of Eliza and Henry, as he tries to teach her how to live life offline—whether she ‘likes’ it or not.
In addition to Gillan and Cho, the series stars Tim Peper, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Allyn Rachel and David Harewood.
